Sow seeds thinly 13mm (0.5in) deep from March to August in rows 15cm (6in) apart. Plants for overwintering can be sown from August to September in rows 30cm (12in) apart.
Land cress does best in a cool, moist soil and part shade.
When large enough to handle thin seedlings 10cm (4in) apart.
Keep plants well watered, especially sowings made in the spring.
Cut plants regularly while they are fresh and young, as this will encourage further growth.
